    Getting 118kW charging on my ancient S75D !

    I’ve never seen charging over 98kW at any state of since the day I bought my car in 2016, and lately it was usually maxing out at 88-90kW. 145,000km and 4.5 years old. Today I’m getting 118kW! I thought it might be an artefact of sudden charging, but actually it started at 110kW at 13%SoC and...

    I want a new Model S

    Has anyone else noticed that the pace of innovation seems to be slowing at Tesla? When I bought my Model S in 2016 I got a facelifted AP1 car. So the car had just had an exterior refresh. A few short months later AP2 was released (didn't realise at the time I'd dodged a bullet :-)). Then AP2.5...

    TuneIn not working?

    I’ve noticed for the last two days that TuneIn is not working. Just shows the “Have a TuneIn account?” question. It used to have a default car account.

    Did prices just go up?

    Not sure if I recall correctly, but it seems the price of Model S has just gone up on the Tesla AU site.

    Out of warranty repair

    The modem in my MCU is apparently playing up, and Tesla Service want to charge $4100 for a new MCU. It would be a like-for-like replacement if the old 3G MCU. The car is less than 3 years old, but has 107,000km so is beyond the warranty. Does anyone have an opinion about whether this should...

    Help with HPWC

    Hi all, I recently moved house, and went from a 3 phase supply to single phase supply. I'm using the same HPWC, just running on single phase 32A. After the electrician connected everything up (added a new circuit etc) it was energised with a normal green light at the top, but when connecting...

    PSA: Check your bill if you are/were on AGL $1/day

    My last two bills were unusually high, and it seems AGL has been adding my car usage into the general usage. It turns out I had been overcharged about $500 total over the last 2 quarters. The person at AGL apologised and said that this "happens a lot" with the Electric Car plan.

    Long Range is 100D

    This inventory car is a "Long Range" Model X. Model X 100D 5YJXDCE2XJF097242 | Tesla Australia The thing is, it has 5,700kms on the odometer. I can't imagine one of the new Long Range cars has put that much mileage on the clock since last week or whenever the badges changed, so I'm guessing...

    My 3rd door handle failure in 2 years

    I've had driver's door, then passenger door, now driver's door handle again fail since buying my Model S new in October 2016, 2 years 4 months ago. I'm on 94,000kms, so just past the 80,000km warranty limit. This should be covered under Australian Consumer Law, right? Even though it's past the...

    Renault Zoe in Australia

    It's so sad ... I noticed the Zoe is on the Renault Australia site with a price of $52,000. I thought it might be interesting to have a test drive, maybe not wait for my Model 3 reservation. When I asked about the Zoe, the Renaults salesman said "I literally don't know what that is". Sigh...

    “Limited Charging” message

    I saw a new message this morning. I remember feeling like I hadn’t pushed the charging plug in properly last night, and this morning when I checked the app it showed a message I hadn’t seen before. It had automatically set the charge speed to 16A at 240V. Normally I have it at 25A.

    ICE Comparison Mode

    It would be interesting to have an Easter egg that allowed ones Tesla to simulate any ICE car. You could choose for example “Toyota / Corolla” and the car could use known performance curves for power, torque, gear ratios etc to simulate exactly the feel of driving that ICE car. It would even...

    Did my car steer to avoid accident?

    I’ve had my S75D for about a year. The other day I entered a main road from a side road at fairly high speed, accelerating and turning left. There was a concreted divider (wall) which I was approaching as I turned in. I was driving fast but was obviously not planning to hit the divider...

    Not enough Superchargers

    I'll be doing a tour of Europe in a Model X in a few weeks, and as I plan the trip it occurs to me that we are really being under-supported in Australia when it comes to Superchargers. I acknowledge that Australia is remote, but we buy a lot of Teslas. I see them every day driving around...

    Australians spent $42.5 billion on fuel last year

    Call me mad, but I've spent part of my Saturday night doing a Cost Benefit Analysis for EVs in Australia All statistics are for 12 months ending 30/06/2016 and come from this report: 9208.0 - Survey of Motor Vehicle Use, Australia, 12 months ended 30 June 2016 I was inspired by a chat I was...

    Dead Patch!

    I've met a few people at the Heatherbrae supercharger who were charging to 100% so they could get to Forster and back. We could use a destination charger or two up there!

    Model 3 RHD confirmed for Mid-2018

    Elon today tweeted that the RHD version of the Model 3 will be rolling out in 'summer' 2018. I remember the original plan being simultaneous rollout of LHD and RHD lines, but it seems Tesla has decided to keep things simple to ensure a smooth launch. Personally this just make me even happier I...

    Sydney Supercharger Speed

    What peak charging speeds to people get at the St Leonards supercharger? in my facelift MS 70D (locked 75) I never seem to get above 92kW, regardless of state-of-charge or temperature. Is this normal? I'd love to know peak charging rates for other cars at this supercharger. Please share!

    The Dash-cam I want

    My perfect dash-cam: - Streams to the cloud, so data can't be lost if the device is destroyed or stolen - If that's too much data, streams to a storage unit which can be hidden anywhere in/on/under the car - Records sound as well Does such a device exist?
